Willie – Update 5/6/2018

Willie came to us on Wednesday, 5/2/18 with a 4-5″ gash on his neck that he received as a result of being attacked by another dog.

After taking possession of Willie, we immediately took him to Dr. Kline at Preston Animal Hospital, where he was assessed and treated. The bites were so severe and deep that it was decided to take an x-ray to rule out the possibility of broken of teeth being left in Willie’s neck.

Throughout it all, Willie has been the most wonderful dog. He is a very cooperative patient at the vet clinic, and a great buddy at home. Willie is very laid back, enjoys a good nap, and does great with other animals.

We’ll do our best to keep you updated on Willie’s progress.

Pasha is now available for Adoption

Pasha has successfully completed all of his medical care, and is now available for adoption. This young dog (approximately 1 year) weighs about 25 – 30 lbs and would make a great addition to any home. He is crate and house trained, likes people of all ages, and does well with other dogs. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is not expected to have any issues as a result of the fracture he sustained. He is looking for a home with a safe and secure fence.

If you live in the Greater Louisville area and are interested in adopting him, please complete an adoption application at https://www.cognitoforms.com/SaveOneSoul/SaveOneSoulAdoptionApplication . Our adoption fee is $150.00.

 

Pasha started Physical Therapy

On Wednesday, Pasha started physical therapy. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, and the skill and knowledge of Dr. Ruth Schmidtchen and her vet tech April, Pasha was able to work the underwater treadmill, and laser therapy.

Pasha is in the final stretch of his recovery from a fracture femur. Once he will be cleared by our team of veterinarians, he will be made available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting this young dog, please feel free to complete an adoption application at https://www.cognitoforms.com/SaveOneSoul/SaveOneSoulAdoptionApplication

Pasha – Update

At only 8 months of age, Pasha was found as a stray in Meade County, KY. He had been hit by a car and was not able to use his left hind leg.

We worked with The Spirit Fund of Meade County to get Pasha transferred to us, so that we could get him the veterinary care he so badly needed: we first took him to Preston Animal Hospital, where he received an initial evaluation, and his routine vaccinations. Unfortunately, the fracture proved to be too involved to be handled by a primary care veterinarian, and we subsequently took Pasha to Elk Creek Animal Hospital, where he underwent surgical repair of his fractured left femur.

Pasha is recovering according to plan: while Pasha recently had the rod in his leg removed, he was also neutered at the same time. He will begin physical therapy in a little over a week, so that he can gain strength and range of motion in the affected leg. Once he will be released from veterinary care, he will be made available for adoption. If you’re interested in adopting him, please complete an adoption adoption application, so that we can get the process, which is very thorough, under way.

Pasha Update — 12/14/2014

Pasha returned to the vet yesterday to have the pin in his leg removed.  Dr. Shelley from Elk Creek Animal Hospital was very happy with Pasha’s progress.

While Pasha was under anesthesia, he was also “fixed”. He was quite groggy at the end of the day.

Now, Pasha has to wait for about 2 more weeks before he can start with physical therapy.

Pasha – Update 11/3/2016

Pasha Update

Pasha, the young homeless dog that was hit by a car, is recovering from a surgical repair of his femur. Alissa, his foster mom, has shared with us that he is doing well. Pasha remains on strict crate rest, and now, as the of pain in his leg has improved, he is starting to protest about his confinement. He has started to act in a more mischievous manner, just as you would expect a puppy to act. As you can see in the video, Pasha is an extremely sweet dog.

Pasha still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Once his leg will be healed, he will require physical therapy to help rebuild the muscle tissue in his leg. This will be a very important component of his recovery.

We can’t wait to see him run and play as he should, when he is fully recovered!

Pasha on 10/21/2016 after Surgery

Pasha, the stray dog that was hit by a car in Meade County, had surgery to repair his fractured femur yesterday.

Pasha did really well during surgery. The fracture was repaired using wire and a pin. The pin will remain in Pasha for some time, and he will be on strict crate rest for several weeks. Pasha was already released from Elk Creek Animal Hospital today. Below are pictures of Pasha after surgery, and a video of the happy reunion with Alissa, his foster mom.

This young and super sweet dog was facing at best a very uncertain future, and we are honored that we were asked to help him. If you would like to help contribute to his care, donations can be made online by clicking on the “Donation” button on our Facebook page. Checks can be sent to PO Box 353, Hillview, KY 40129.

Thanks for all you do!

Pasha – Update 10/19/2016

Pasha, the dog that was hit by a car and not claimed by his owners, went to the vet for an assessment yesterday. A big thanks to Dr. Caryl Kline from Preston Animal Hospital, who came in on her day off, just to meet and treat this great little guy!

Pasha was found to be heartworm negative (yay!), but he did have hookworms, for he is being treated. He was also vaccinated, and, since he will need surgery, we had a blood workup done for him.
The surgery will be complex, and will most likely be done by Elk Creek on Thursday, 10/20/2016. We will keep him comfortable until then.

Pasha will also need physical therapy after surgery.
Despite his injury, Pasha is so sweet that the doctors and staff at Preston Animal Hospital quickly fell in love with this great little dog (he only weighs about 25 lbs).

Thanks to Alissa, who has stepped up to foster this sweet dog.

Pasha is pictured below as he is getting dressed to go to the vet, and in the car on his way to the vet.

Please share this post on your timeline, and tell your friends about our page, where we will continue to post updates about Pasha‘s progress.

Thanks,
Heike

Pasha’s X-Ray Lateral View

Here is a video of Pasha, and the x-rays that were done by the initial rescue (The Spirit Fund of Meade County) are also shown.

Pasha was picked up by animal control in Meade County as a stray after being hit by a car. This was on 10/12/16, so he has been living in pain, not being able to use his hind leg for quite some time now.

Pasha will be going to see the vet later today for assessment and a treatment plan, which will include surgery. We have been advised that if this fracture will not be surgically repaired, the muscles in Pasha‘s leg will contract, causing permanent damage to his leg.

Donations to help with Pasha‘s vet care are appreciated, and can be made by clicking on the “Donate” button on this page. Checks can be mailed to PO Box 353, Hillview, KY, 40129.
